FREE Simple Sock Pattern
If you’ve never knit yourself a pair of socks, then I wonder why not? They are a fun project which is portable (especially when using a small circular needle) and the end result is so satisfying to wear.
My favourite sock pattern is worked top down and is very simple in design. It is mainly worked in stockinette stitch and features a tratitional heel flap and banded toe. The simple design allows me to pick up and knit a few rows here and there without having to think about it too much. It is also ideal for showing off variegated hand dyed yarns, or having fun with colour blocking and striped yarns.
